Gartner’s Magic Quadrants and MarketScopes method shows us some of the leaders in the Internal Social Software Market.   You can see a review of the trends and leaders in this article “Magic Quadrant 2010 for Internal Social Software“.

  • Mobile Adoption in the Enterprise: The adoption of smart phones and other devices will continue to increase as the workforce becomes more mobile and security improves.
  • The Rise of APIs: Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) will gain favor in the Enterprise as more organizations realize this is the rocket fuel that supplied the explosive growth of Social Networks across the internet.  A deeper appreciation of APIs will also be discovered when integrating data from various sources across multiple devices becomes more important.
  • Enterprise App Stores: Empowering users, lowering the price of development & cutting the cost of technology maintenance will be strong contributing factors to supporting Enterprise App Stores.
  • Cloud Computing: The seductive way Cloud Computing lowers IT cost in the Enterprise will attract more attention to improving security in the cloud, which will help increase adoption.
  • User Experience: Nobody wants to touch or use anything icky.  2011 will be known as the year of Personal Experience, as stakeholders and developers get back to the basics as they remember that they are creating solutions for people.  Enterprise 2.0 Solutions will become very sleek and sexy.
  • Game Mechanics: Professional game developers have a deep understanding of human behavior.  They spend a great amount of attention in understanding their target audience.  We will see more of these techniques used in Enterprise 2.0 Platforms that will dramatically increase adoption.
  • Analytics: Monitoring how people behave on Enterprise 2.0 Platforms will help provide solution providers the information they need to help improve the “User Experience”.
  • Custom Dashboards: Empowering users and groups with the ability to customize the environment to fit their needs will contribute to adoption and increase productivity.
  • Social Media: Crowdsourcing within internal and external groups and networks will contribute heavily to real innovation.  Integrating backward and forward social media channels will support relationships between organizations, vendors, clients, and customers.
  • Collective Intelligence: The path to “Predictive Markets” will become more clear as we see more sophisticated algorithms incorporated into Enterprise Platforms to support deeper meaning of information and activity.
